Survivor stars Rob Mariano, 29, and Amber Brkich, 26, made their alliance legal at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas over the weekend

They tied the knot on April 16, before friends, family – and CBS camera crew members. Although their secret is out, just about everyone involved in the wedding was sworn to secrecy in hopes that the upcoming two-hour network special – Rob and Amber Get Married, set to air on CBS May 24 – will contain at least a few surprises.

Some details did leak, however. The Boston Herald reported that the couple, who announced their engagement in May 2004 on the finale of Survivor All-Stars (which Brkich won), said “I do” at sundown under an arch of seashells. And Brkich s hometown paper The Beaver County (Pa.) Times noted that the bridesmaids wore teal. Colin Cowie, wedding planner for Jerry Seinfeld, Sela Ward and Lisa Kudrow, made the arrangements.

Meanwhile the couple continue to be front-runners on the current season of CBS’s The Amazing Race.
